I’ve had a number of people ask where I get my material. Most of it springs from personal experiences or memories of things I’ve noticed in life. I’m like a leaky sieve that way. Ideas come and go. Occasionally one flitters past my mind’s eye that looks interesting and I grab it. After that it can go into a poem, a short story or possible a novel. The only problem it that the process is not genre specific. It can be anything which leads to problems.    

Right now I have several ideas in several genre in varying degrees of completeness, and every one is burning a hole in my head trying to get out. Which is not good. I can’t write that fast.

I’ve complained to other writers about it, but they just roll their eyes at me. I guess having such a problem is not a bad thing afterall. It’s just finding the time to do it.

So, there you have it. Where my ideas come from. I just finished a fantasy novel and after Colleen finishes editing, I’ll post a few pages. Once its on Lulu.com I’ll add it to the books category.

It’s off to the gym then a couple hours writing. Hopefully nothing will pique my interest and send me off on another tangent.
